Pompey welcome Wycombe to Fratton for a first ever competitive fixture, it is another chance to tour the JP trophy.
So, a first visit to Fratton for Wycombe, a couple of their players are recognizable, caretaker manager Gareth Ainsworth sticks in my mind for scoring against us for the original Wimbledon, at Selhurst parl, it was in our promotion season if I recall, the dons won 2-1 but the after match kebab was nice!
Another name is Gary Doherty, ex-Norwich and Spurs man, once close to signing for us before Spurs nipped in.
In this our debut season in this trophy, Wycombe must be viewed as a good chance to progress for us, they of course should not be underestimated as they search for a scalp.
Pompey may ring a few changes, our squad doesn't give much room for manouvering but players such as Gyepes and Williamson may earn a rest.
Our Hungarian has a couple of weeks to settle in now, Appleton has stated he will start tomorrow night, I he hits the ground running we could be in for a treat.
Wycombe may rest a few themselves, Ainsworth himself is 39 and will be feeling it, while Doherty and Leon Johnson are both in the veteran stages of heir career.
McClure tweaked a hamstring in their weekend win whle Lewis also is doubtful.
Keeper Bull is vying to return after missing 5 games,
A loan spell at Eastbourne has done him the power of good and he now looks a key player.
Once again, a first time fixture!
